UROC Women’s Rides Begin April 2nd

UROC Women’s Rides Begin April 2nd

The snow has melted, the trails are awesome, the sun is shining later into the evenings… Tune up your bike & get ready to join the UROC Women’s Rides. The main ride (complete with ride leaders) will meet at 5:30 PM at The Riding Fool Hostel in Cumberland, beginning Wednesday, April 2. There is also a peer-group intermediate ride meeting at 6:00 PM – this one has no ride leader, and lights are required. Later in the season as the days get longer all rides will meet at 6.

Must Have UROC Membership

Ladies rides starting April 2nd

Ladies rides starting April 2nd

To take part in these UROC-sanctioned rides, you must have a UROC membership. Get one here: https://ccnbikes.com/2014-uroc-membership/. You can attend one ride before joining (you’ll have to sign a waiver), but then you will need a membership. This does 2 things: supports UROC & the awesomeness of mountain biking wonderfulness they support, and gives the club protection against liability. Mountain biking is risky business! To find out more about why UROC is so integral to biking promotion, land access, and trail building, check out their website: http://www.unitedridersofcumberland.com/

Can you Lead a Ride?
If you know the trails and love to ride, be a Ride Leader!! You don’t have to commit to every week – even a few per season helps spread the love of mountain biking. You don’t have to be an expert rider – rides are non-instructional. You just have to offer encouragement, carry a first-aid kit, and make sure no-one gets lost! You don’t have to “lead” by riding in front of the group, or offering sage wisdom (optional)… just be a part of the crew & have fun! Contact Barbara Milley at bplusb@telus.net if you are interested.

Who’s Who?
The Women’s Ride Co-ordinator is once again the awesome & lovely Barbara Milley. You will recognize her smiling face from last year, when she shared the post with Marie-Clare Goodwin. MC will be at some rides this year, but instead of taking care of our motley crew she has a beautiful new baby to care for. Thanks so much to Barb & MC for all their work last year!!! Looking forward to another great season. If you would like to reach Barb, email her at bplusb@telus.net. If you reply to this email, it goes to the uroc ladies email acct – also managed by Barb. These newsletters are sent out by Lauren LaBossiere (thats_jake@yahoo.com). I am helping Barb with communications this season, and spear-heading some trail maintenance stuff for our group as well…

Hope to see you all Wednesday, April 2nd!!
